As a GOLD Global Navigator School, Payton receives, at a minimum, a dedicated $50,000 in scholarship funds for CIEE Global Navigator Summer Abroad programs. This is in addition to the $5.4 million in CIEE scholarships available nationwide. Full and partial scholarships dramatically offset the cost of travel and nearly eliminate it for some. Once students receive their scholarship award they have time to decide if they want to commit - there is no risk in applying, so don't miss out on this life-changing opportunity!
- December 1: Early application deadline for students to submit online program and scholarship application (75% of funds are awarded by that date, so we encourage you to meet the deadline)
- Mid December: Students notified of program acceptance and scholarship award
- Late December: Deadline for students to accept or decline awards
- February 17: Final program application deadline
Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who elect to apply to one of 39 CIEE Summer High School Abroad programs will be considered for the awards, based on both merit and need. Programs are in the summer and range from three to four weeks and include language/cultural immersion, community service and varied academic programs including science and global entrepreneurship. These scholarships are intended to open the world to students, help them navigate across languages, connect with other cultures, and develop global competencies to thrive in today's interconnected world.
